Adam Toombs: 2020 Pro Prospect Interview

Name: Adam Toombs
School: Southeastern
Position: TE
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 260

Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

A personal goal I set for myself was to drop some weight so I could play at 255-260 to increase speed and agility for my senior year, to not only be a dominate blocker and short yardage guy but more of a down the field threat. I was selected for the second consecutive year to an All-Conference team and was invited to the NAIA Senior Bowl in Savannah, GA.

Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?

My coaches would attribute my hard work and aggressive edge to my relentless effort of becoming the best player I could be after making the switch from college baseball to football after my sophomore year. Former teammates would say I’m always the toughest player on the field.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?

When studying film, I first look at how I can improve my game week in and week out, then I look at opposing player tendencies.

Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?

What separates me from other pro prospect Tight Ends is my focus on blocking and being as physical as I can be.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

My offseason plan is to continue to work at perfecting my craft with a focus on speed and route running. I look to participate in a Pro Day down in my hometown of South Florida or wherever the opportunity present itself.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

On and off the field I bring an aggressive, competitive mindset that’s strives to win in everything I do.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?

My final pitch to the NFL and other pro leagues is that I’m a sure handed TE that’s prides himself in blocking and a player that brings the size and physicality to compete on any level. Looking to take advantage of any opportunity that comes my way.
